Worried by the rising cases of cultism resulting in violent clashes in a few areas of the state, the Lagos State Government has reiterated its determination to deal decisively with anyone found engaged in cultism and criminal activities as it has directed the law enforcement agencies to ensure that such unwholesome practices are dealt with accordingly.

A release today by the State Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Mr. Steve Ayorinde, stated that the government would henceforth go tough with any cult member or group, sponsor or collaborators, as well as criminal gangs disturbing the peace as it would not fold its arms and watch innocent citizens suffer unduly in the hands of unscrupulous elements.

The release said that the State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode, has directed the State Police Command to use appropriate force to fish out and deal decisively with any individual, or group of persons involved in cult activities and criminal gangs wherever they may be in the state.

It reaffirmed the commitment of the present administration to improve security and protect lives and properties of the citizens and therefore warned all criminally-minded individuals not to test the will of the government as it will unleash the power of the law on anyone found threatening the safety and peaceful co-existence of Lagos residents.

The release implored parents and guardians to keep watchful eye on their children and wards and also the groups they move with in order not to run foul of the law.
